Chicky Stand Offs

The 8 chicks are trying to sort out the pecking order, literally.  

We have a series of face-offs.  White and Yellow, for example, will have a Blink contest. They stand like chicky statues for what seems like forever, then suddenly one of them will have hackles risen and will attack the other. There's then a bit of a boxing match (the stance is similar, but obviously they fight with beaks rather than gloves), and the one of them runs off and starts the process with someone else.

Sometimes one of the TopChicks will do a round of the others,  just pecking them on the head to remind them Whos In Charge.

It's funny and horrible at the same time.
